Tembo House Hotel

Zanzibar & the Coast

Rating: Modest    

Tembo House Hotel overview

Situated on the picturesque seafront of Stone Town, and just a few minutes' walk from its bustling centre, Tembo House Hotel is a fine old Arab building that has served a number of purposes. For many years it was the American Consultate and, in 1884, it become the premises of Cowasjee Dinshaw and Partner, a famous Trading Company in the western Indian Ocean. Whilst a modern wing has been added, the older part of the building has retained a great deal of its character and historic features.

Tembo House Hotel is set in an ideal location for relaxing after a day's sightseeing. The ll guest rooms are spacious, and well decorated, with Oriental and traditional Zanzibari ornaments, antiques and furniture. Facilities include air conditioning, telephone, mini-bar, multi-channel television and en-suite bathroom. Most of the rooms have balconies overlooking the beach or the swimming pool courtyard. The swimming pool and Tembo House''s convenient location make it a good choice for families.

The Bahari Restaurant offers excellent local and international cuisine. It should be noted, however, that Tembo House Hotel is one of just two hotels in Stone Town that do not allow alcohol to be consumed on the premises; something that used to be the norm on the island.

There is a souvenir shop, offering a range of gifts and curio items, and there is an Internet café.

Tembo House Hotel is a ten minute drive from the airport.

Activities include exploring the winding alleys, bazaars, and ancient buildings of Stone Town (recently made a World Heritage Site), swimming in the fine pool or on the wide beach. Marine sports, picnics and spice tours can also be arranged.
